Classes for Kids in Harlem
For the budding dancer inside your child, a dance class is the perfect way to let that talent blossom. The Dance Theater of Harlem has classes for ages 3 and older in various dance genres. Not only is dancing fun, but it’s great exercise and a wonderful way to meet new friends. My Gym Harlem is another way to mix health and happiness. Kids can take gymnastics, strength building courses, and other coordination-building classes. You can even hold your child’s birthday party at their facilities. For those little artists, Riverbank State Park holds classes and workshops in art, as well as courses in culture and dance.
Family and food are the perfect combination. Sylvia’s Restaurant is a must-visit for soul food like none other. Selections like southern fried chicken and grits, corn meal dusted catfish, and meatloaf are mouthwatering and tummy-filling. They’ve got a kids menu too. Feeling like some finger-lickin’ BBQ? Dinosaur Bar-B-Que is the best and biggest. Burgers, ribs, chicken, you name it! They also have a great kids menu and even gluten-free offerings. Red Rooster is a Harlem favorite from celeb chef Marcus Samuelsson. The food is all about the roots of American cuisine and menu items like cornbread, shrimp and grits, meatballs, and chowder are sure to please any palate. Be sure to save room for Red Rooster doughnuts!
